The Courtyard is a new ( about a year or so old) hotel only about 1km from the SJO airport. It has all the qualities of any Courtyard , so that is nice to have the level of service and expected rooms, internet and amenities that you would get in any stay in the US. They have a free shuttle... More

This is a good hotel to start or end your Costa Rican vacation as it is very close to the airport. The only complaint is you need to use a cell phone to call for the airport shuttle, which is hard if you just arrived in the country and don't have a working cell phone yet...

This is a solid, American-style hotel. The rooms are standard Marriott quality. The pool is little more than a large, outdoor bathtub, but you are unlikely to be visiting Costa Rica for pool at the airport hotel. The service at this hotel is excellent. Reserve early and look for deals on the Marriott website.

What makes this hotel is the staff. Friendliest staff in Costa Rica in 13 years of living here. The location is also a plus, although you are someone isolated from any local shops and/or restaurants. The only shopping is another fascist Walmart store, and the only restaurants are more expensive than anything you find in Paris. Diana and Jose at... More

This is the ideal location to start and end a trip to Costa Rica, especially if you are arriving in the evening and/ or departing on a morning flight. Less than 5 minutes from the airport- the free shuttles run every 30 minutes starting at 4am. Staff is very helpful. Rooms are clean and well appointed.Walmart and restaurants within walking... More

My new wife and I were visiting Costa Rica on our honeymoon and needed to stay here because we had an early flight in the morning. It is really close to the airport. We have stayed in Marriots before and this one did not live up to those expectations. Don't get me wrong, the hotel is clean and has ac,... More

The Courtyard Marriott was a great hotel for a quick stay. Diana at the front desk was nice and pleasant to interact with. They were very helpful. The rooms are very nice, clean, and contemporary. Two minutes from the airport with a free shuttle to pick you up.

I just got back from a trip to Costa Rica. For most of the time I rented an apartment a half hour away from the airport.
